I’ve never been one to follow the crowd.
If everyone else heads right, you can be pretty sure I’ll go left. Not because I’m a contrary so-and-so (although I can be), but because I’m convinced that using the path less travelled gives you the space to spread out – the room to do new things with passion. In fact, I’d usually follow the general rule that if you’re doing the same things as everyone else, you’re probably doing something wrong. Or, if not ‘wrong’ exactly, ‘dull’ might be a better description.
If there’s one thing the team at Pure Transfer has never been accused of, it’s being dull.
We don’t do dull.
Now, with all that said, it doesn’t take a genius to spot that podcasts have arrived on planet Earth with quite a bang! With the aid of social media, smart phones, smart speakers and the rest, podcasts are, as I’m sure you know, quite the thing. I’m not unaware that, these days, everyone and his dog has their own podcast. In fact, it might be quicker to put together a list of people who don’t have their own podcast than compile one of those who do! Which is probably why I can hear you shout:
“Murph! If you don’t do what everyone else is doing, why are you releasing a podcast?”
The answer is simple. Podcasts are a form of communication so embedded in our 21st Century lives that to ignore them would be a bit like announcing a company doesn’t need a website, or phones or an internet connection. Yes, Leaky Pipes is a podcast, but it’s a podcast done OUR way. We’re not blindly following the masses. What we’re doing is taking advantage of the opportunities offered by a technological revolution!
We’ve grasped the nettle and decided to use our podcast to share Pure Transfer’s philosophy with the world! In each episode, I’ll be joined by writer Chris McGuire as my partner in crime. Chris glories in not knowing anything about the high purity world, which means he’s the perfect person to make sure we don’t go off into an overly-technical tangent. Together we talk about manufacturing, life and approaches to business in today’s fast-paced ecosystem.
Over recent weeks, setting everything up, I’ve had to get used to listening to the sound of my own voice (how Mrs. Murphy copes is beyond me) and I’ve discovered that what I love about Leaky Pipes, as a listener, is it’s funny. Chris and me are two people, who probably enjoy the sound of their own voice a little too much, shooting the breeze.
If you’re after a po-faced podcast discussing the relative merits of dehydrated fluff, then frankly Leaky Pipes isn’t for you. If, however, you’ve ever wondered what 25 minutes of high purity hi-jinks, with banter, guests and a truly unhealthy focus on cake sounds like. Give Leaky Pipes a whirl. Yes, we’re well aware that the first few will probably be awful but we all have to start somewhere and how will you know if we get better if you don’t listen to how bad we are at the beginning?
The truth is, we’ll be making it anyway, so you might as well listen!
Cheers all, ‘Murph’
